Trivia

For about a year the movie held the title of the most expensive Russian movie ever made, which previously belonged to Nikita Mikhalkov's movie Sibirskiy tsiryulnik (1998) for more than a decade. In 2010 the budget of Obitaemyy ostrov was beaten by that of another movie by Mikhalkov, Utomlennye solntsem 2 (2010). See more »

Goofs

Red armored car, which Maxim steals near the final, was designed without a door. So the crew had to cut the hatch in the tank's plating. When Guy Gaal knocks the car, it can be seen that the hatch cover is actually made of wood. See more »

Vivid and with some sparks of intelligence.
4 January 2009 | by (Latvia) – See all my reviews

Bondarchuk's last motion picture "The Inhabited Island" is very colorful and vivid piece of film. Visual material is stunning, top notch. Characters and environment are interesting and story too, for me as a die hard sci-fi fan seemed great. Yes, the main character is blond... So what? He comes from the Earth that lives in the golden age, having defeated all the illnesses and wars. People there are beautiful and they are smiling as it can be seen in the movie. On the contrary, on Saraksh people do not understand why he is smiling because there they are stricken with diseases and constant wars, radiation levels etc. Film suffers a bit from cheesiness in the end, some already seen things in other movies but it still has some good qualities. The scenes with Guards and their song are stunning.

Great visuals, great environment but still it lacks top notch acting and some things have already been seen.
